S/Africa Sweat On Star Striker Vs Nigeria

S/Africa Sweat On Star Striker Vs Nigeria

Bafana Bafana striker Lehlohonolo Majoro will be assessed ahead of Bafana Bafana’s final Afcon qualifier against Nigeria on Wednesday.

South Africa qualified for finals in Equatorial Guinea for the first time since 2008 with a 2-1 victory over Sudan, but were without the injured Majoro in their match day squad.

The Orlando Pirates striker was ruled out after he failed to recover from an ankle injury picked up during training, and it remains to be seen whether or not he will be fit for Bafana’s dead-rubber against the Super Eagles.

When asked if ‘Major’ would be ruled out of Wednesday’s clash as well, coach Shakes Mashaba told KickOff.com, “I won’t said that.

“I don’t want to get ahead of myself. The medical staff will deal with him and will come back to us with feedback.”

Majoro, 28, was called up as backup for Mashaba’s preferred starting forwards Bongani Ndulula and Tokelo Rantie.

Having already qualified for next year’s tournament, it is believed Mashaba may give some of his fringe players a run against Nigeria, yet Majoro’s availability for selection for the encounter remains in doubt.
